Students from Glasgow Caledonian University have raised over £100 in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.
Second year Business Students Sarah-Jayne Tunstall, Sarah Steel, Alexandrian Tzevelekos, Azar Ace Rasulov and Nathan Quinn organised a university fun day which included games, a raffle and a confectionary stall for fellow students and staff.
The event, which the students organised as part of their Business Studies course, was of special significance to David’s cousin Sarah-Jayne, who said:
“The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund is a charity close to our hearts and therefore saw no other alternative but to fundraise in support of it. We believe the event went very smoothly and turned out to be a success.
“There was great interest and interaction throughout the day from students and lecturers, who were intrigued to hear more about the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund. With this, were able to raise money for an extremely worthy cause, helping those who served our country”.
The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund provides financial support to wounded, injured and sick personnel and veterans through Help for Heroes. So far, over £270,000 has been raised and over one-hundred and seventy financial grants have been awarded.
The funds have been used by beneficiaries to purchase specialist rehabilitation equipment, enable respite breaks and PTSD therapy as well as facilitate supported employment placements and the setting up of businesses. Based on the kind words received from several beneficiaries, our work is making a huge difference in rebuilding lives.
Our sincere thanks to Sarah-Jayne, Sarah, Alexandrian, Azar and Nathan for supporting David’s legacy.
